“Excellent value, practical location”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Everything was smooth from making reservations to check-in, the stay and a very early departure. The staff are helpful, efficient and multi-lingual, also patient with hesitant attempts at Spanish and Catalan. Good breakfast. Excellent area for small restaurants and easy access to two of the hop-on hop-off buses.

I'd happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Not overlooking Av Loretto if you are a light sleeper, but great if you like to feel the pulse of th...

Recently stayed here for a long weekend.
The hotel has a nice reception area with very friendly and helpful staff, they always said hello when leaving or entering the hotel. They dealt with check ins very quickly too, as i saw quite large groups turn up at the hotel and they did not have to wait long at all before going to their rooms.
There is free wifi available for 3 days and residents of this hotel can also use the swimming pool at the Gran Derby across the street.
The rooms are spacious with good storage and are very clean, the bed we had was huge. The bathroom is very clean also and there is complimentry toileteries if you have forgotten anything. There is also a hairdryer but i did not think it was very good, I could not use my own one which I had brought with me due to a difference in the voltage, but no issue to me.
We stayed here as we were going to the football, Camp Nou is about a 20-30 minute walk so not too bad and there is also taxis very close by too.
Would stay here again.

It is quite clean, the service desk is well managed.
I use to go there one week a month and I consider it with a good balance cost/quality.
It is 10min from downtown by taxy , in Barcellona the taxy are quite cheap.

Clean, quiet, comfortable, economical and has a good breakfast. It is located in a convenient area near shopping, dining and easy to travel via bus and underground. Taxi service available very close to the entrance. The Diagonal is just one block away and this is one of the main roads in the city.

Reviewed 15 December 2013

The hotel is located nicely about a 10min walk from the city Center and the Barcelona Sants railway station. The Loreto street is quiet and you won't hear any traffic to the room. The hotel itself is quite ok - the rooms are big enough, there's enough storage for two large suitcases. Service was also quite good and everything was super clean.

The guests can use the pool at Gran Derby which was across the street and quite nice. The pool was small but it was real nice to be able to use it during those hot July days.

Negative points were the breakfast and the air flow in our room. Let's begin with the breakfast which was served until 10 or 11. We arrived about 30 min before it ended and they were already out of several products such as eggs and toast - they only had some ham, cheese etc and very dry & hard baguette which was absolutely impossible to eat. There were more guests coming in after us but the staff didn't fill the empty plates and didn't bring any new food. Few minutes before the breakfast was ending they started to clean up the breakfast room and removing the remaining food. This was quite lame. It's a holiday hotel, after all. People shouldn't have to rush with their breakfast which was already over priced.

Secondly, we woke up during one night because we had turned off the air con and somehow it felt as the room as running out of air since we both felt short of breath. We had to keep the air con on which was very loud.. Not a good ending to our trip.

Good location, very friendly staff, good comfortable rooms, decent breakfast. Ideal for business trips. Excellent pricing compared to general Barcelona level. Highly recommended for business travellers who don't want to spend a fortune in BCN.

Room Tip: 5th floor was nice.
